Hamilton fever has officially hit DC. Thousands of Kennedy Center members have lined up virtually and physically to snag the hottest tickets coming to the center opening June 12. Those in virtual waiting rooms on the site have already complained that they are behind 30—no, 50—no, 60,000 others (and counting). Resellers began advertising tickets at expectedly exorbitant prices almost as soon as they went on sale at 10AM today, though the Kennedy Center has been clear on its FAQ page: “If you purchase tickets from any other source, we cannot guarantee your seats.”
